Ok, my 2013 XTS has 41000 miles on it. I've had it since new and the factory bumper to bumper warranty will be out in another 9000 miles. I will probably hit 50000 miles before the 4 years. I just got a letter from the dealer about the extended warranty offer. I usually make it a point to not buy extended warranty on anything I buy. But in this case I just might think about it. The car has been pretty reliable but with all the electronic stuff I'm not convinced of the future reliability. Any opinions?

Joe......my wife has an 2011 CTS which has been reliable. ..she decided to keep it for a couple of more years because she likes her car...I purchased a 4 year warranty from GMC. Her car was only at 32000 but the peace of was worth it to me....so guess it depends on if you wanna keep it or trade up

I've always been pretty much the same about avoiding extended warranties. These cars are not cheap, though, and I'm quite certain they're not cheap to fix either. I'm thinking about it too. I've got a little time though. My car only has 343 miles on it so far.

If you read the extended warranty and what it covers you might decide not to get one. After it tells you what it doesn't cover you have to ask yourself...what does it cover and how much would it cost me to get something fixed that is covered. I had a 2006 STS for 90000 miles and over nine years. I can think of one item that may have been covered by an extended warranty......less than $500 to fix and an extended warranty $1800?

FYI - Once the mileage is over 40000 miles it is no longer considered 'new' for the GM extended plan and will probe cost more and cover less... I'm waitign to hit bout 38500 then will purchase the extended warranty--
